Isaiah made mention of how the righteous treated their children versus how the wicked treated theirs. The righteous invested in their children by teaching them the ways of the Lord. They were actively building on what the Lord had blessed them with. But the wicked failed to consider the well-being of their children. They didn’t give their future any thought at all, instead they slayed them.
How are you doing with what the Lord has blessed you with? Not children necessarily, but maybe the ministry he has given you? Maybe your own growth in the Lord? Are you nurturing it or have you hindered it by putting zero effort into seeing it grow?
